I found the error: The artwork path has to be named "icon", not "icons".

I converted my icons from ico to png and it works now. Thanks!

edit: I mistook your "---" for a signature divider and thus overlooked your second reply. :)

I would use the unzipped version – if it worked on my system (Kubuntu Linux 14.04). See my reply above.

My icons are in .ico format. Which file formats are supported?



I have no clue about the errors - but I can see that you are using zip theme. If it's on RPi I would wait for RPi optimized version. If not please use the theme unzipped - it's much faster this way.

Alas, it doesn't work for me. My emulators/mame.cfg:

Code: [Select]
# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.2.1-50
executable           $HOME/bin/mame64
args                 -video bgfx [name]
rompath              $HOME/mame/roms

The flat_blue portion of my attract.cfg:

Code: [Select]

param                shadow_strength Medium
param                show_wheel Enabled

My icons are in .ico format. Which file formats are supported?

edit: There is an error about a missing "panels" index. I don't think that it is connected to the icons problem, but here it is nonetheless:

Code: [Select]
AN ERROR HAS OCCURED [the index 'panels' does not exist]

It doesn't have a problem finding attract.cfg as all the other settings and data is present and correct, it just seems to ignore the hide_console setting when launched through Steam. Unless I am misunderstanding what you were saying, in which case could you please go in to more detail about what you suggested?

General / windows joystick numbering
« Last post by slydog43 on Yesterday at 08:41:37 AM »
I'm having some issues with joystick numbering in AM.  Does anyone know how this is done.  What I'm looking for is a way to specify a number for each joystick by its USB device ID.   MAME has this capability now by using controller files and using something like

<mapdevice device="Generic   USB  Joystick   product_00060079-0000-0000-0000-504944564944 instance_719b54d0-567f-11e7-8001-444553540000" controller="JOYCODE_5" />
I'm looking for something like this.  Windows is very strange how it assigns numbers to joysticks upon boot, its not always the same.  Thanks

Hey there! I absolutely love that theme. Actually built an arcade box based on that and it looks amazing.
I do have a major issue though - it looks like AM keeps running in the background hogging CPU usage after I launch games. I don't get that issue with other AM themes. Could you please advise?

With NxL theme:

With any other theme:
Emulators / How to mount .cue files in Dosbox?
« Last post by huettmaster on Yesterday at 03:52:06 AM »

i want to play Dungeon Keeper on my Raspi in Dosbox. Starting the game is no Problem but it asks me where the CD is. This is my Dungeon which starts the game from attractmode:

Code: [Select]
/opt/retropie/emulators/dosbox/bin/dosbox -c "mount c /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/pc" -c "c:" -c "cd KEEPER" -c "KEEPER.EXE" -c "exit"

The path to the .bin and .cue is the following

Code: [Select]
Code: [Select]
Can someone make a working code from it?that would be great! Thank you!

Try adding your Attract-Mode folder to you Windows "path". Then when you launch Attract-Mode use the "-c" switch to provide the path of your configuration.
